This Week

Highlights of the week… We had a Friends of the Library board meeting in record time and, weather permitting, are going to try an outdoor meeting next month. We did a few last summer and they seemed to work well so I’m hoping this happens. Also related to the Friends I made my first bookselling video to put on FB to see if I could sell some books that way. It was a horrible five minute video, but I learned something new and will try again next week (and I did manage to sell a few books :)).

We bought some yard games and had a few warm days to try them out before the freeze kicked in again (there was snow for a bit yesterday!). My favorite, badminton, came last so we haven’t had a chance to play yet.

Jason is a tennis guy and our favorite player is Rafa Nadal, so I ordered some stuff from his Academy for Jason’s birthday. It FINALLY came a week after his birthday, but it came all the way from Spain and I like to think that Rafa personally tried on the clothes before carefully packing them with love. That’s why it was late, of course, because he’s such a busy man. Don’t even try to convince me otherwise.

    It’s exciting to imagine meeting outdoors soon, isn’t it? And congratulations on making the video. In these odd days, it feels good to do new things, I think.

    It’s been gray and lightly raining every day this week. We ordered sand for our sandbox, the favorite spot of our g-kids. Snow? Oh my!

    We love Jean Laffite here. There are rumors that he hid his treasure on Galveston Island, near us.

    Hope you enjoy Nomadland.

    I loved Nomadland and Feels Like Falling, and I hope you do too!

    I checked to see what The Husbands is about and think I’d like it since I liked The Stepford Wives.

    I love Viola Davis and Denzel Washington, so I’ll look for Fences, and I love the Jumanji movies.

    I’m hoping to hold next month’s book club meeting outside, if the weather cooperates. We finally got into the upper 70s yesterday, which was glorious!! Of course, it looks like we have a week of rain coming at the end of next week, but it was so nice to spend the day outside and have all the windows open last night.

    I’ve had Fences in my Netflix queue forever and will probably get to it in the next month or so. Something else always seems to nudge it down in the list.

    Nomadland is a thought-provoking read. I enjoyed it much better than the movie.

    It sounds like you had a great and productive week, Stacy. It looks like you read some great books. I do hope your weather improves. I am hoping I can talk everyone into going on a outdoor outing with me tomorrow since we have such nice weather. I hope you have a great week!

    That’s an interesting selection of books and films. I’m familiar with a few of them, others look intriguing.

    best… mae at
